After they have gone


Marriage is like that
The softness of being loved
Not wanting to part

See them look your way
Remembering former days
Those twinkling eyes

Keeping a grave face
The the children misbehave
Instead of laughing

Needing to be firm
When making decisions
Never uncertain

Heated discussions
Then cuddling up together
All now forgiven

Then crying alone
In the now huge empty bed
After they have gone

    The reality of the situation unavoidable but true. But still it is worth all the sacrifices, joys and pains!
